Azure instance type support

It is recommended to deploy FortiAuthenticator-VM on an Azure instance type with a minimum of 2 vCPUs, and a memory size of 8 GB or larger. This is because FortiAuthenticator-VM requires that at least two data disks are configured, including one primary data disk for the image and a secondary disk for user data. When selecting an instance type for your deployment, consider your use case for FortiAuthenticator and the requirements to support it.

For up-to-date information on each instance type, see Sizes for Linux virtual machines in Azure.

The following table provides information on general purpose instance types:
